In Celebration of Earth Day

Our way of celebrating Earth Day and the Seasons, was to express our appreciation of color in nature , and how our understanding of color comes from nature, A few examples are via plants, flowers , sunsets and rainbows. We discussed how cave dwelling people and Aboriginals first ground rocks , roots, berries and seeds to make the pigments they used for their art and many of these sources are still used today.

 Week One: Cave Paintings

It has been an eventful week in our Art Literacy class. We have been all around the world.  I would like to thank all of my wonderful students for their great efforts. We began with the story of the discovery of the discovery of cave paintings in Lascaux,  France  and also looked at images from  Spain , where the oldest known cave paintings have been found,  in the cave called El Castillo. The prehistoric dots and crimson hand stencils are now the world's oldest known cave art that dates more than 40,800 years old.
